Women Against Heart Disease Lunch

Women Against Heart Disease Lunch 2021 POSTPONED

After careful consideration, and in light of the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments, we are postponing the Women's Lunch to later in the year.

We remain excited to host the 2021 event and will get back to you with more information on specific dates in the coming weeks. 

Women Against Heart Disease Lunch

Scientists at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute are leading the way in the fight against heart disease in women on several fronts.

Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute Executive Director Professor Jason Kovacic has been working with an international team of scientists, who have discovered there are vast differences between women and men in what causes disease of the blood vessels at a genetic level. The results of this study could transform the treatment of heart and vascular disease in women by potentially developing new sex-specific medical therapies, such as tailored treatments, unique to women and men.

Each year this event is held in honour of the late Monica O’Loughlin, Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute, Finance Manager who tragically died of a heart attack.
